Lexus LF-NX Concept previews a new compact crossover ahead of Frankfurt

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 4, 2013

Ok… we admit, we needed few moments and few breaths in order to start talking about this concept. Set to make its debut next week at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA), the Lexus LF-NX Concept is Lexus’ vision of a compact crossover. Maybe this is not its best vision as the LF-NX Concept looks really weird, but we are sure that the production version will look a little bit better.

Powered by a new variant of the Lexus Hybrid Drive system tuned for SUV performance, the new Lexus LF-NX Concept features a strong interpretation of the company’s spindle grille, extremely expressive signature front lighting with independent Daytime Running Lights (DRL), and unique (and weird) corner styling which separates the bumper from the front wing with an aggressive vertical cut.

The rear end of the car is even more surprising and the concept features highly articulated lamp clusters. Finished in a new Brushed Metal Silver exterior color, the LF-NX Concept gives the impression that its bodyshell has been carved from a single piece of solid metal.

The interior features the ideal, upper display zone and lower operation zone dashboard format perfected over successive Lexus generations. Carved metal surfacing is complemented throughout by Sunrise Yellow / Black leather upholstery with contrast stitching, and sophisticated blue instrument lighting.
